Donate to Graham’s ride

23 April 2021

On 18 April, Graham Smith, a former staff member, will ride into the sunset from his job after more than eight years working for the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation (ARLF). This will be a second attempt to begin the Against the Wind fundraising bike ride from Canberra to Perth. Last year’s attempt was postponed due to Covid.

Graham’s goal is to raise at least $40,000 toward a scholarship for the Australian Rural Leadership Program (ARLP). Money raised last year, prior to the commencement of the postponed ride has already been put toward the ARLP alumni scholarship for ARLP C28’s Oli Le Lievre.

The 4,000 kilometre ride will take about 40 days to complete and the route will include communities such as Yass, Gundagai, Wagga Wagga, Hay, Euston, Mildura, Renmark, Burra, Port Augusta, Minnipa, Nundroo, Border Village, Cocklebiddy, Fraser Range, Coolgardie, Merredin and Perth. Donations will benefit an ARLP applicant from one of regions or rural communities along the ride.
